    All that butter would give me a lot of pain. (Gallstones) i roast my pumpkin in the oven with a tiny tiny smear of sunflower oil. Sweet potatoes, fillet steak, broccoli I roast in oven with no fat. Bought a small oven from aldi, great for 1 or 2 people and cooks quickly. You can also buy fry pans that can be used will little fat. Great vegies in recipe.

    Good ol’ porridge (semi-fat milk) with a sprinkle of all-bran & Macro Aussie Hemp seeds (available in Supermkts) + a sliced small banana & a few defrosted berries does it for me. Can cook up an approx 5day supply of the porridge/refrigerate it & just reheat “a serve” in microwave – no more cooking. So easy, so healthy….happy way to to start the day. Meat/fish/chicken & vegies all saved for dinners when awake enough to want to cook!!
